37. Freda Yuan – on how coffee changed her life
Freda Yuan lives for coffee: the aroma, the taste, the experience and the benefits it brings in life. Her job title is ‘Head of Coffee’ at Origin Coffee Roasters, day-to-day she oversees procurement of coffee – including green coffee – from a variety of countries, and holds responsibility for product development and quality control. This involves tasting a LOT of coffee, and as a result, Freda is also an award-winning coffee taster. In 2017 she placed 3rd in the World Cup Taster Championship, and women the British title in 2018. Wondering how you win a coffee tasting competition? Listen in the hear more….
But coffee has done more for Freda than merely provide her with a very successful career and the opportunity to travel to some of the world’s most beautiful places. It has also helped her recover and rehabilitate herself from a dark place of depression, anxiety and disordered eating. She tells this story as well today, and offers hope to others through her recovery.
